I have a new television. I've been after one for a while, although the one that I had worked just fine - I've been hankering for a HD TV since they first started becoming reasonably affordable and now I have one >o<; I decided on this one, because the price was excellent for what I was getting. Having an Xbox 360 I wouldn't have ordinarily bothered with a DVD player but when I try marathoning DVDs on my Xbox it tends to start disliking it and starts vibrating and making a buzzing sound. It doesn't seem to affect the DVD but the noise is alarming, and at least this way I'm not fiddling around with buttons to swap the connections over to my Xbox when I want to put a DVD on.
I've started playing Minecraft. Why? I'm not entirely sure. Call it curiosity combined with boredom. It's proving to be quite fun so far, though I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with it so it's more of a way to pass the time. I managed to fall in lava three times today before I realised that I didn't even know why I was mining obsidian, I was just doing it. I haven't been brave enough to turn the monsters on, but one odd thing has happened. I spawned in the Taiga biome, and got pretty lucky with where I decided to dig in. My rather large underground fortress (which I fondly nicknamed the Mines of Moria) is attached to a wellspring on one side and a very, very large carvern on the other which still has some bits that need exploring. I had to signpost it so I wouldn't forget the way out. Since it's cold enough outside that the water freezes, I have a sugar cane farm in my cave, and the oddest thing that has happened in there was my coming to harvest and seeing a strange black shape moving around in the water. I had no idea what it might be, and just about freaked out when I saw this flopping about.
A squid. A squid. Indoors. In one of my sugar cane pools.
What else what else... My sleeping pattern is buggered to all hell again, I got up at gone 6pm today to some dirty looks off my mother and a demand to know what was wrong with me. Nothing is wrong with me I just happen to enjoy staying up all night. It's not as if I'm missing anything during the day anyway.
I'll be using my alertness tonight to finally catch up on all the writing I have to do, because the deadline for the aph_fluffathon fics I need to do is closer than I thought it was. I also have four RPs to reply to. Erk.
